, tucson, movie theater in colorado, sikh temple in wisconsin, oregon shopping mall. even with those mass shootings, it has become easier for most americans to carry a gun, own an assault rifle, or use high capacity magazines. in the aftermath of connecticut, voices, most notably from tearful president obama, are calling for tighter gun control. you won't hear them in a california gun show held the day after the connecticut massacre. >> everybody is in a panic. i have never seen so many people at a gun show. worried about the second amendment rights. >> reporter: there is sympathy for the victim. >> it is horrible that those children did die. >> reporter: but the solution here, more guns. >> if one of those teachers, one of them, faculty member a janitor, had a gun, bam, he would have killed -- nothing compared to what he was capable of doing. you have to allow us to protect ourself. >> the guns didn't kill people. it was the person who was crazy. he was mentally unstable. >> reporter: the colorado governor said two days before the connecticutshooting. >> i took my 10-year-old son out sho
with a flurry of bullets? by the way, look what happened in oregon, look what happened in colorado, look what happened in virginia. look what happened in a religious temple. look what happened in connecticut. we can't say these are random isolated events anymore. >> it's an epidemic. >> it's an epidemic and growing epidemic. i just wonder, dan, this is the last question to open it up for everybody else, come on, let's get real, buddy, what if mitt romney had an election a year from now? and he had to be the candidate that had to defend the right of americans to buy 10 millimeter glocks and bush masters and these these cartridges that allowed you to continue to spray bull bullets at 6 and 7-year-old children, or at moviegoers. people shopping with their families at malls, how would he do in bucks county? how would he do in the i-4 corridor? how would he do in the suburbs? i don't mean to be crass to my fellow republican friends. a lot is riding on this. if you want to be the party that is willing to put your future on the line to defend the right of americans to possess these military style co
our children. the violence we see spreading from shopping malls in oregon to movie theaters in colorado to college campuses in virginia to elementary schools in connecticut. it's being spawned by the toxic brew of a violent popular culture, a growing mental health crisis, and the proliferation of combat-styled weapons. though entrenched special interests are going to try to muddy the cause in the coming days, the cause of this sickening mass shooting like the others is no longer a mystery to common-sense americans, and blessedly, there are more common-sense americans than there are special interests, even if it doesn't always seem that way. i say good luck to the gun lobbyist. good luck to the hollywood lawyer who tries to blunt the righteous anger of millions of parents by hiding behind twisted readings of our bill of rights. our government rightly obsesses day and night on how to prevent the next 9/11 from being launched from a cave in afghanistan or a training base in yemen, but perhaps, just perhaps, now is the time they start obsessing on how to stop the next attack on

and tomorrow hammering the west coast, especially from the bay area all the way up to the oregon border and into the mountains going to see significant rainfall. and that could lead to mud slides, and also some localized flooding. so it could potentially be dangerous just to be out on the roads. and also you have to count in too there is going to be strong winds. and once again, there could be more power outages. back to you. >> chris warren from the weather channel, chris, thank you. >>> back to politics now. time now for one more helping of trail mix. and we're letting this one go to pot. as in weed. so if you're someone who is prone to the munchies, so to speak, this story may be of interest to you there is a new poll out. it shows for the first time ever an even split amongst americans about whether marijuana should be legal. 47% of 47%. not exactly an even split there is the 3% on either side there. it seems rather dubious i suppose. speaking of dubious, congress on the brink of being branded as the least productive governing body to oversee our country since the 1940s. the last ti
november 19th, it was oregon. getting bomb threats. a week after that, it was 30 courthouses across the state of tennessee. bomb threats and no devices were found by authorities. one court clerk reported hearing a man say if this is the courthouse you are about to be blown up. so it was neb and washington and tennessee and mississippi. after the news broke, we spoke of officials and the fbi. and they told us that they were related. quote it is an ongoing investigation. but it would be foolish not to one court clerk reported hearing a man say if this is the courthouse you are about to be blown up. a week after that, it was 30 courthouses across the state of tennessee. bomb threats and no devices were found by authorities. one court clerk reported hearing a man say if this is the courthouse you are about to be blown up. so it was neb and washington and tennessee and mississippi. after the news broke, we spoke of officials and the fbi. and they told us that they were related. quote it is an ongoing investigation. but it would be foolish not to look into the possibility that these are c
, the oregon shopping mall, and now we saw them in an elementary school. they're capable of firing if you have a magazine of 30, 30 bullets in a few seconds or even 100 in less than a minute. and, you know, this, make no bones about this, larry. the guy that went up to that school, adam lanza, he had enough bullets, enough magazines to eliminate the entire school. >> why do we need that? this is a question i have. i mean, i would get rid of the semiautomatic or narrow it down to extremely, extremely narrow stuff. but, again, why do we need these huge magazines? why do we need 100 bullets that sort of thing? why do hunters need that? >> why would a hunter need to have 100 magazine? what do they want to do? take a deer and destroy it completely? is that the sport? is that the fun? i thought hunting was about having one shot, if you're hunting for animals and taking that shot and experiencing your skill as a huntsman. there's no skill in blazing a deer with 100 bullets. there is no sensible reason why you need to have these high-capacity magazines other than for criminals who want to obliterate p
